Talk about doing things with one hand, as we are back for our second season of old Amazing Race recaps - Amazing Race Australia 2! Over these twelve weeks, three people who have a listening impairment, but what can you do? - Logan, Michael & Michelle - are recapping a season that has an insane reputation amongst fans (which is completely justified), continuing with the eighth episode and second half of the double-length leg - eliminating Sticky & Sam.
In this episode - Michelle goes on hunger strike, we explain the difference between Keep on Racing and Double-Length Legs, last week's cliffhanger proves very misleading, Paul stops reacting, eleven-year old rumours get debunked, no-one does a good job on the Roadblock, Logan drops some Che facts, the cast clearly divides, Michael's family changed in lockdown, RFF get corrected, Grace does nothing, the crocodile farm is run by Mennonites, a non-trick question is asked, Production fudges the real reason for the elimination, there's a very insincere apology, Sticky & Sam disappear and we look ahead to the beginning of the Canada legs.
Thank you for listening - we will see you next week for Leg 9!
Please note: This episode is intended on being spoiler-free - however, as with our other historical recaps, this episode may contain references to episodes that we have already covered - namely from Seasons 3; 23-32; Australia 3; Canada 2-5 and Asia 5.
Additional note: Really excited to say that every leg from here on out is a barnstormer - prepare yourself for the final four episodes!
